Skip to comments.Majority in poll says Obama is 'mixed race'
Posted on 04/14/2014 3:44:24 PM PDT by SMGFan
A majority of people in the United States perceive President Obama as being "mixed race, a new poll suggests.
In a study of America's evolving demographics, the Pew Research Center found 52 percent of people view Obama as being "mixed race." Less than a third view him as "black."
More than half of white people view Obama as "mixed race," but more than half of black people view the president as "black."

WHO CARES!? Why is this an issue?
I guess we need a pole to see how many people think water is wet.
Is this important?
I think mulatto is the word they are looking for.
I’m actually more interested in why he considers himself black.
Why is it so important to Obama's media minions that we indulge this fantasy that he's 100% African-American, as opposed to half European-American and half Kenyan?
Maybe he hated his mom.
Couldn’t possibly be political expediency could it?
I consider him white.Genetically,he’s *at least* half white and his four most important influences (his whore mother,Saul Alinsky,his white Maoist grandfather,and his white Maoist,domestic terrorist pal) are/were all white.
Very few mixed race people choose to be white. For some strange reason most choose to be an “oppressed” person.
He’s 100% halfassed.
I give up — human and what other?
I see no reason to indulge in perpetuating an irrelevant fantasy in either direction.
People are people. Not show dogs.
There is no value of any sort in some sort of genetic pedigree.
Just put “mixed” and refuse to play any game of percentages.
Not only do you get to be factual, it seems to unhinge both the left and apolitical atheists. Worth doing for that alone.
I always check “No answer” when filling things out that ask for my race.
I think it is but I can’t put my finger on it. In the days of miscegenation laws any drop of Black blood was the legal basis in some states as classifying someone as Black to their potential detriment. Blacks more than whites now seem to harbor the antiquated notion. Further it’s been used by Democrats, and Obama, to advance their goals.
I’m Black like you so you should vote for me and Hope and Change. In a sense it’s self deception based on a now discredited prejudice. Obama was the latest scam trotted out by Democrats to keep Blacks on the plantation. Since he’s probably more white than Black, why is the “blackness” more important? His experiences growing up were not those typical of oppressed Blacks. He actually had a privileged upbringing and life which was essentially given to him and not earned. As such his claim to the ability to lead Blacks to the Promised Land via Hope and Change is bogus as hell.
What we had was an extremely deceptive marketing campaign that took advantage of misconceptions. From that aspect the poll is revealing. Obama in a nutshell was seen as the Black savior when in fact he advanced the self-enslavement of Blacks by playing on their prejudices.
Blacks didn’t gain anything by Obamas ascension to power on what is a false premise. To the contrary he has sullied the notion of a capable Black president among many and worsened the economic prospects of Blacks.
It is a valuable discussion - not the President specifically, but “race”. There is one race - the human race - and there are innumerable varieties of skin color (melanin). In the discussion of blackness, is it skin color or heritage? Does my great great grandfather’s blackness and my great grandmother’s Cherokeeness make me a black Cherokee even though I look like a purebred Viking? Does my heritage have no value because of my melanin. What reparations would my family get when the wingbats get their way? What is the line between black and not black, what shade exactly? Or can we all be Elizabeth Warren and name it, claim it? We should have this discussion.
>>I give up human and what other?<<
You know I am NOT allowed to say anything about how he married into...
But there is a Star Wars explanation...
Obama and Holder have zero slave blood. They are complete frauds. Its ridiculous how real black people here (with slave ancestors) fall for their garbage but I guess the freebies and whitey hating rhetoric is too seductive
And if Holder/Obama don’t give them enough racist red meat....They always have their closest Representative from the Congressional Black Caucus. From Elijah Cummings on down
Was fagot scum bucket a choice?
Which just goes to prove once again that 48% of Americans are hopeless freaking morons.
My first thought also. What a waste of time and money that poll was. Maybe the next poll will ask: Do you think Obama is a tall person?
No, that would be an Octroon; possibly a quadroon if you want to be liberal in your usage (see, for example, Alexander Dumas).
Majority in poll say the sky is blue.
he is almost 1/2 Arab right?
That says 2 things about Obama. He’s in denial and he’s a racist bigot.
LOL! Somebody had to take a poll on that? I guess black people don’t want to admit to the fact that he’s part white, like that would be a betrayal of their race, or something.
Seriously, it took a poll to confirm that?
Oh, yeah. Didn't he marry some kind of a sports award winner? Wookie of the Year, or something?
I think we can safely say that Obama is an utter Poltroon ....
A poll might yield that. A pole would show us how deep the water is.
Many, if not most, of us are.
The bottom line is that I couldn’t care less about Obama’s skin color. He is the one who focuses on that when he thinks it will benefit his policies.
I think his ideals are dangerous for everyone: red and yellow, black and white. And all variations thereof.
I regard King Barry as white. That way it isn’t racist to hate him.
Yes, who cares? I would say that Obama is more “Mixed Nuts” or “Mixed Ideologies” than “Mixed races”.
How about Obama’s rule being classified as “Mixed Cereals: Full of Flakes, Nuts, and Fruits”?
The huge majority of "blacks" are mixed race. There are very few that are 100% black, and most of them would be recent immigrants.

No. He is half Luo, not Arab. He is red all over and that is the salient point.
or maybe his mother hated her own race, and taught that to him
Not only was his upbringing entirely outside the typical experience of black Americans he is not related to a single black American on either side of his family. He has zero cultural heritage of the black American experience.
Half Black.. Half White.. and Oh yeah, politically he’s HALF-A$$ED.
Do you think Obama is a tall person? “
I love when papers do polls about facts, and then report the polls as if they have meaning. What they SHOULD do is look at the polls and realize they are failing at their job of educating the masses.
Obama IS mixed race. If blacks say he is not, that is because the media has failed to report the facts. It would be like doing a poll about whether the sky is blue.
We're talking about 0bama here. I think a piece of tissue paper would suffice.
